How NoCs Ace Power Management and Functional Safety in SoCs
September 15th, 2021 - By Benoit de Lescure
The NoC interconnect is the SoC architecture.
This third article highlights how NoC technology provides capabilities like power management and functional safety that are not possible with older crossbar-based interconnect technologies. For design teams creating modern SoCs, whether large datacenter AI accelerators or power-sipping IoT sensors, NoC interconnect technology is key to implementing these SoC architectures and optimizing the dataflow within them.
